vintage crawling

In Toronto for a minute to take in the fall Vintage Crawl, where a number of vintage stores stay open until midnight for some serious shopping pleasure.  I did however, have two regrets at the end of the night.  One being that I haven't worn these boots in a decade and forgot how much I love them, and two, I forgot how ridiculously heavy they are.  By the end of night it was as if I had just completed a cross country trek wearing weighted ankle bands!

Top (Philip Lim for Target). Jeans (Gap). Boots (thrifted, Army Surplus, Toronto, ON. $25). Handbag (Givenchy). Sunglasses (Ray-Ban). Necklace (Juicy Couture).

how do you wear vintage? - jennifer

My friend Jennifer Lopez was in town this weekend and we had some serious fun playing dress up in my closet.  She picked out this jacket, clutch and belt and styled it her way, and I LOVE the look.  It was so great to catch up and talk fashion and personal style with a real maven.                                   

Jacket (vintage, ST. Vincent de Paul, Windsor, ON $30). Top (H&M). Jeans (H&M). Shoes (Zara). Clutch (Vintage,  Value Village Thrift, Windsor, ON $4). Belt (Club Monaco). Bracelets (H&M). Eyeglasses (Ray-Ban).
